Sue, We use clear rite on our stainer with no problems, I have 3 changes in 
the front, 100, 95, 80 then h2o. Then 3 on the end, we have a sakura 
coverslipper so we  set the slides in xylene before going on the machine.  I 
would like to try clear rite on the processor but have not done it yet.  
Hope this helps.  If we are running Immunos we leave the slides in the clear 
rite for 5 minutes, otherwise it is 3 minutes each.
